Home makeovers

I spent last week helping one of my daughters paint the paneling in her den. For most of you who are not my age those two words (paneling and den) are probably words you have not heard very often.

Initially this column was going to be about what baseball movies are good ones to stream, but I've decided to switch it up – actually Netflix and Amazon forced me to switch it up when I realized they didn't have good number of quality baseball movies.

Holloway: The movies that put the HORRIBLE in horror

If AMC's horror-thons aren't enough to get those "I'm to scared to get up and see if that's a coat hanging in my closet or the guy with the hook in 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'" juices flowing then there are plenty of movies on Netflix that will. There are more terrible horror movies than there are good ones and Netflix has a full slate of don't-watch-these-unless-you're-drunk-and-want-to-laugh horror flicks. So, instead of listing those movies here are some you should avoid.

Storytellers galore

My club lady with a vengeance friend has dragooned me again into doing something. I am to be a story teller at Scary Tales and Trails. I think I was the first one she called when she decided she needed story tellers, and I agreed without thinking it over much. After all, I told and acted out stories every day while I taught school. Greek myths, legends of King Arthur, Shakespeare. Anything to amuse the masses. You have to be part ham to teach school.

The challenge of downsizing

Have you ever thought we live in a world where often our possessions possess us. The recent release of a new IPhone demonstrated the desire of many to have the newest and latest. The forever multiplying amount of stuff we have demonstrates our weak ability to make critical choices. This is a growing trend in our world. If you look inside the beautiful houses in Covington's historical district, you will notice how much less storage there is as compared to home built in today's world. There were fewer closets and those few were much smaller. And furthermore there ...
